New Blog Location: eyescastdown.com

First of all, thanks to everyone who reads this for following my musical and other adventures.

Now that the retooled eyescastdown.com is up, I’ve moved my blog there. It has a cleaner look now and I’m tidying up some entries a little, but it’s basically unchanged.

I’ll leave this now-“old” version up for the time being, but there will be no new entries, and it will be taken down in the near future.

I hope you’ll pay a visit to the new website and the new blog. Our Philadelphia trip is next week, and there will be a lot to report after the vortex settles.

Best wishes,

Greg Moorcroft

New Website; New Look; Same Guy…

My website, eyescastdown.com, has a brand new look and is mobile-friendly at last!

Google Plus Banner Sep17

I’m loving the new scenic photography on the home page, and Wade Chandler did a great job of “just shooting me” for the Press page.

I felt the need to update my music description. “Ambient-Atmospheric” is fine as far as it goes but, for me, that’s not so far any more. In particular, the implication of “Ambient” – that the music is as readily ignored as listened to – just doesn’t work me for any more. The music that’s playing me has always demanded attention, though an atmospheric element is always present.

So the term “Ethereal” covers that nicely, and “Progressive” was an inevitable choice, given the importance of Progressive rock and fusion music in my history, and my love of jazzy, altered chords, modes and odd time signatures. So… “Ethereal, Progressive Soundscapes” it is.

The Gatherings and Star’s End concerts are coming up, and I’ll have much to report afterwards.

In other great news, the CDs of The White Island have arrived. Release day is October 1. The premiere on SomaFM’s DroneZone is Oct. 3 at Noon, Pacific time.

Quick News: 2014 Promo Mix; Website Improvements

Cover for 2014 Promo Mix by eyes cast down

Cover for 2014 Promo Mix

The annual ritual continues: I’ve updated my free Promo Mix for another year. This is a 53-minute medley of clips from 13 pieces (sourced from published and forthcoming albums, and compilations). It’s available for streaming, free download and sharing (the usual non-commercial and no-derivations caveats apply) from my Bandcamp store. Please share with anyone you think might enjoy discovering the music.

I’ve implemented some tweaks to eyescastdown.com, to improve the layout and functionality. The coolest thing is the addition of Bandcamp listening widgets on the Listen page and each release page. Now you can listen immediately, without having to leave eyescastdown.com. This includes all the compilation albums as well as my own releases.

A preview clip for Memory Palace will be posted shortly, when we announce the album’s release date.

A shout-out here to my colleague Phillip Wilkerson, whose music I’ve recently (finally!) had the pleasure of discovering. His releases Sojourner and Highlands are simply outstanding, and I can’t wait to hear his latest, Wondrous Encounters, and the upcoming Vague Traces (with Chris Russell, on the Spotted Peccary label). If you haven’t discovered Phillip’s music yet, you’d best head over to his Bandcamp page right away.
